FunctionThought to be involved in the biogenesis of the hydroxyphenyloxazoline-containing siderophore mycobactins
ProductAcyl-CoA dehydrogenase MbtN
CommentsRv1346, (MTCY02B10.10), len: 386 aa. mbtN, acyl-CoA dehydrogenase, similar to many e.g. NP_251579.1|NC_002516 probable acyl-CoA dehydrogenase from Pseudomonas aeruginosa (386 aa); NP_036951.1|NM_012819|ACDL_RAT|P15650 acyl Coenzyme A dehydrogenase (long chain) from Rattus norvegicus (430 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 414, E(): 1.2e-18, (26.1% identity in 376 aa overlap); etc. Note that previously known as fadE14.
Functional categoryLipid metabolism
ProteomicsIdentified by mass spectrometry in M. tuberculosis H37Rv-infected guinea pig lungs at 30 days but not 90 days (See Kruh et al., 2010). Translational start site supported by proteomics data (See Kelkar et al., 2011).
TranscriptomicsDNA microarrays indicate repression by iron and IdeR|Rv2711 in M. tuberculosis H37Rv (See Rodriguez et al., 2002).
MutantNon-essential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv, by analysis of saturated Himar1 transposon libraries (see DeJesus et al. 2017). Non essential gene by Himar1 transposon mutagenesis in CDC1551 strain (see Lamichhane et al., 2003). Non-essential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv, by Himar1 transposon mutagenesis (See Griffin et al., 2011).
